Life in Trash - Survival through garbage | Middle East

A journey through the dumping areas of different parts of Middle East taught me another phase of human life.
I really�wondered while seeing some of them were in search of something from among the waste materials. I approached them curiously and asked about that. That paled faces had a lot to tell me.�They are in search of�used dresses and household articles.� They�used�to collect the things to recycle for further use.�Even meat and vegetables that have been thrown away get cooked and eaten.� It�s enough to sustain the thousands who live and work here removing cans, rags, plastics and glass bottles � anything they can sell to recycling companies � from the unsorted waste. I saw more male workers there and are mainly from Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka and Nepal who are working there for several years in the dumps. They lead their life between toxic substances, foul odors, stray animals, diseases, flies and extreme weather.
These people who live away from home to support their families, but Life was undoubtedly harsh for them.
A 59 year old 'Ahamed' from Bangladesh says �I�m not ashamed to be a recycler; it�s a way to support my family."
And these people continue to live with hope for a better tomorrow.
